  • Amazon Security Awareness: Organizations and individuals require security training to identify and keep themselves safe from cyberattacks.  Often, they lack time to take hours long training courses.  Amazon has designed a digestible curriculum that is used with its employees to educate and anticipate possible security threats.

  • Multi-Factor Authentication: Highly sensitive information, i.e. customer information, personal documents, company technology and infrastructure assets require stronger tools to protect data.  Qualified AWS account holders may receive a MFA device at no additional cost that provide customers with a stronger security posture.
